right now in this investigation. we have learned a short time ago that the suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, now will not face criminal charges until tomorrow. even though massachusetts doesn't have the death penalty, he should face the death penalty under federal law. >> this is just kind of case that it should be applied to. in fact, the only other time it has been used since '94 is on timothy mcbay. given the facts i have seen, it would be appropriate to use the death penalty in this case and i would hope they would apply it in federal court. >> reporter: there is growing evidence today that his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had become incredibly radical. this video of a radical jihadist was posted and then removed from his personal youtube channel. he created it in august shortly after an extended visit to russia. there are increasing questions about how the fbi handled its investigation of tamerlan tsarnaev. they did not follow up after that trip to russia last year. the very latest on the investigation from our crime and justice correspondent, mr. joe johns. joe joins us from washington.

carney has now let us know that this bombing suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev is not -- i repeat, is not going to be treated as an enemy combatant. there have been a lot of questions about just what kind of prosecution this young man is going to be facing whether it would be in civilian justice or perhaps would he be one of those considered for prosecution in a military tribunal, perhaps even at guantanamo bay, but there you have it straight from the white house he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. the court and justice itself for boston and for the nation may well depend on exactly what those interactions are right now going on between dzhokhar tsarnaev and the high value detainee interrogation group. again, that's a very frightening sounding group, but the high value detainee interrogation group is comprised of a number of officials of the cia, the fbi and others. those very well may be the people who are at that hospital bedside periodically asking whatever questions they can get out of this suspect. i want to get into some of that right now with three of the smartest in the busine

the boston marathon bombers as brothers, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev. they are from a predominantly muslim region in russia. the 19-year-old brother believed to be extremely dangerous possibly armed with explosives on his person. unclear whether he was injured in the shoot outlast night in which his 26-year-old brother died. it's unclear whether he's injured and hiding somewhere and unable to move, whether he moved, they don't know right now. we're told that the brother was wearing explosives and a triggering device when he died which is why they're worried -- >> the older brother. >> the older brother. this is why they're worried the younger brother could be in a similar situation. this happened overnight and intensified. police say the suspects robbed a convenience store, shot and killed an m.i.t. police officer. i was on the air live when that happened last night, wolf. and as you know, it was no expectation at that time that there was any relation between the two things. but there ended up being. >> and when they heard of a convenience store robbery, stuff like that happens. >> right.
